Objectives: Compare inter-rectus distance (IRD) at rest between women with vaginal delivery vs Caesarean section. Describe the effect produced by different abdominal exercises on IRD. Setting: Physiotherapy practice. Design: Cross-sectional experimental study. Participants: 38 postpartum women (vaginal delivery: N=23; Caesarean section: N=15), primiparous with a single baby. Interventions: 2D ultrasound images from the abdominal wall were recorded at rest and at the end-position of the… Expand
